Has anyone else had problems with video quality since the app update to SYSTM? I am running it on an M1 Macbook Air, and I never had any problems with the Sufferfest software. Yesterday during Recharger, for 20 minutes the video looked about the quality of a 2008 camera phone, until the last 10 minutes where it was around 3 frames per minute. I am sure sufferfest used to cut the video if the performance was bad, which is a lot less annoying than a random few images from a video.
I thought maybe this is a connection issue, so I attempted to download a video with SYSTM. This downloaded with no problems at 10 MB/s, compared to less than 100 KB/s during the workout.
Downloading the videos seems like a temporary fix, but how can I see which videos I have downloaded? I don’t want to end up with a hard drive full of systm videos. I’ll also try running the Intel version of the app—has anyone had any trouble with this?
I’ve just launched it on mine (M1 Mackbook Air) for Defender and the video quality was fine and that wasn’t downloaded.
Maybe see if the Minions can help
Hi @simon1 I have faced a similar issue with my iMac (running Mac OS 11.6). The video was interrupted several times and the quality was the lowest possible. I changed the config to optimize the video card on and off and restarted the program also numerous times. The best solution was to download the video. I faced it with the workouts “open 15” and “Tapers” and eventually I had to download the videos in order to concentrate on the workouts and not on tech.
Right now when testing it seems ok, but it’s really frustrating during a workout. I get what you’re saying about concentration. I had a pretty stressful day yesterday and just wanted to unwind, this just ended up annoying me more.
@Coach.Andy.T Good to hear the Apple silicon version is working for someone, maybe I’ve just been unlucky. Will do some more testing.
I don’t think this is a Mac problem, happens on windows too from time to time. Probably lack of bandwidth on Wahoo’s part.
@warfarin I thought that at first, but when I went to download a video it downloaded at 10MB/s (100x faster than the speed it was streaming at).
Hi @simon1 i had the same problem playing Vise Grips on Tuesday at times it looked like a Channel 5 picture looks to maybe be a problem with WiFi connection but yet on my iPad I don’t seem to have the same problem as for downloads when the video has downloaded there should be a little tick beside Start Workout
